Can I delete a Quick Control Preset from my list


I made quick control presets for all of my 3rd party audio insert effects plugins but since have deleted a few of those plugins. I want to clean up my drop-down QC preset list so how do I delete one of them?

If I have to load one up to select “remove preset”, I can’t do that because I don’t have it on my system anymore. Can I access the list somewhere on my hard drive to manually delete them?


They’re saved (on Cubase 11 and Windows 10 at least) in “C:\Users\[user]\AppData\Roaming\Steinberg\Cubase 11_64\Presets\Quick Controls.pxml”.

I haven’t had the need to edit the file, so I’d advise making a backup just in case.

It’s in XML format, each individual preset starting with

< obj class=“FPreset” ID="[xxxxxxxxx]">
< string name=“Name” value="[Preset name]" wide=“true”/>

and ending with

< int name =“Unrenamed” value=“1”/>
< /obj>
